The blog write-up doesn't need to have any apology from you! Nothing you had said implied that you had jumped to any conclusions, only that you would
keep us posted as events unfolded.
The press release (linked PDF) was written well in advance of the construction of the UFO landing strip, so I suspect that the newspaper, the police
and all others, were in on the suspense and publicity of the launch (or "landing" as the case may be).
That's how War Of The Worlds, and other fantastical things, get into the public consciousness.
